Ep. 50 – A Mammoth Undertaking

The three cavemen hunt for and gather facts about the downfall of the Wooly Mammoth.  Genetic analysis reveals humans didn’t wipe them out, but they get the assist.  Raj explains that contrary to the mammoth, humans’ strong genetic diversity would prevent the zombie apocalypse.  Jono proposes a Jurassic Park like mammoth hunting preserve for #CecilTheMammoth, and Joe changes course to oppose cloning, subsequently preventing any Hitlers of the pachyderm family (also available on iTunes).

The Paper: “Complete Genomes Reveal Signatures of Demographic and Genetic Declines in the Woolly Mammoth” (Palkopoulou et al., 2015).
